I'm talking about the movie. The plot and setting are promising, the mood is ominous and serious. Krennic looks pretty evil and hell bent. Vader is rolling on his prime psychotic power trip. How will Disney handle the darkness of the Empire? Will the movie be grim enough or will the Rebels again look like they're playing the Empire and are fancy about it?

Replies

  • I'm thinking a mix. The Empire will have its moments, but so will the rebellion.

  • I have very high hopes for this film. I'm hoping it can sort of change the tone and the target audience of Star Wars. Hopefully Disney has no issues going slightly darker with some of these spin off films.

    Well they did bring in Gareth Edwards to direct. I did enjoy his version of Godzilla two years back.

    That's good to know. Last Godzilla was pretty good and RO doesn't need to hold back on the amount of agressiveness the Empire can display towards it's prey. I'd like to see alot of carnage during parts of the film showing Empire knows no limits.
  • I really hope we see at least a few shots of Vader ripping through some rebels lol. I'm so excited
  • I think the movie will top the force awakens in terms of story, action and characters
  • It has to be better than episode 7 right? I mean it has to be!!!! :#

    Episode 7 was good on first viewing, but the more I watched it, the worse it got for me.

    I thought i was very unoriginal and a cop out money grab for obvious reasons. Lets hope things get better as the mouse moves on.

    I think it's gonna be amazing. Hoping for some Vader action with his saber.

    Defo gonna go at the midnight release.

  • People are so hyped about this, both the movie and the DLC. "The trailers look EPIC...", because there haven't been awesome trailers for movies that disappointed a lot of people, right?



    Oh...
    "I felt there was a large amount of human chauvinism... also I felt very bad that at the end the Wookie didn't get a medal also... oh, all the people got medals but the Wookie who had been in there fighting all the time, didn't get any medal, and I thought that was an example of Anti-Wookie discrimination." - Carl Sagan on the subject of Star Wars
    He knew.
  • The DLC or movie?
    The DLC will probably better than all other 3 DLCs due to large maps and larger battles. More fun for everyone. Might be my first DLC I'll buy.

    The movie will become great as well. The director was controlled by the LucasFilm story group. Also it's a war movie without Jedi. Might be awesome. No remake of eps. 4 like TFA was. Something new.

    All I want is to see the Empire going on a rampage and Vader also ripping through rebels like a boss. I dont want to see Rebels being in control but instead making great sacrifices and taking leaps of faith against the crushing Empire. If Disney did that I'd be most pleased.

    Because obviously in the entire history of cinematography, there hasn't been enough White Male leads and female actresses who's only purpose is to provide sex appeal and have extremely shallow characters with no development.

    Keep this out of Star Wars! I never had a problem with females in Star Wars!

    Yes, Daisy Ridley is attractive to the extremes, bit I always felt there was more to her character in that film, no?

    Ahsoka Tano? But I know what you mean. Not in Star Wars. Leia was great in OT.
    Rey development. No force user, one hour later, stronger than Anakin as Padawan.

    Yeah. It was obviously something new. George did it great. Disney wasn't brave enough to do something new. Too afraid to fail^^ RO could be now different.

    Yeah she was good because she questioned and challenged the sometimes archaic Jedi ways and like Anakin was more original and also challenged him as well. Ahsoka had her own mindset and didn't let others influence her.

    That and the tone could be unconvincing. RO has to be ominous.

    Yes. As long as there's no:
    Feminism
    Plot holes
    Stuff that don't make sense
    In-movie explanations

    Why does a female lead automatically mean it's feminism?

    So you would risk your own life just to hold someone's hand during a battle? That's dumb.

  • Now them cutting out the graphic Vader scene made me more concerned Disney will keep toning down on violence in SW too much. If Vader goes on a killing spree in Marvel comics when he intercepts rebel ships, he should do the same in the movies.

    Are you serious? That's _______ing lame. Of course they would. Everything has to be toned down in order for them to get the rating they need to sell more tickets. Let the trilogies be more geared towards children and give us the rest. Not everything has to be toned down so that this sensitive little society of ours doesn't get offended or feel uneasy. God, you can't even sneeze these days without somebody being offended.

    Yup because 5 year olds would be scared to see Vader swinging his lightsaber while throwing and choking rebels like rag dolls.

    Actually it's because Disney is making star wars more "family friendly", which means at some point star wars won't have anything resembling violence and they will settle everything with hugs and musical numbers.

    That is a world I do not want to live in. Sign me up for the one way trip to Mars plz and thanks

    Well Marvel isnt all too bad but still. CW had alot of death and violence that even movies didn't have. This is what Disney should uphold and not turn SW into a PG movie franchise. Wars arent something that should be depicted lightly and skipped over if there's a violent confrontation. Fear rage sadness pain and chaos are things war brings and those things should be depicted realistically like in CW for example.
